taken seriously as a book that tells us anything new about thomas jefferson and slavery, and what it does say is it's a book about henry wiencek with jefferson, enslaved people and the mountain thrown into slavery. she has -- her argument really is not with me but with mr. jefferson because what i did was simply to quote documents that she and other leading jefferson historians preferred to ignore. i brought them before the public. they're startling. they're ugly. they change our view of jefferson. i didn't like it when i found it. i didn't like writing about it. but there it is. and i can answer her question about loathing jefferson. i certainly don't loathe the man who wrote the declaration of independence. >> yeah, you know, henry, the basic issue of how do you grapple with major historical figure, a founder of the country who also, you know, sort of promoted in his own way slavery. you know, these perpetuated in his own way. how do you grapple with it from a historical legacy that's not unique to jefferson? obviously you're looking at jefferson and slavery and a har judgment but

thomas jefferson's words when hi was inaugurated, we're all federalists, we're all democrats, or all republicans, and he was speaking to this moment when there was such division in the country, and this is why history can be so instructive. he was peeking to this moment in 1801 when they had just come through a very, very mean and controversial election that was decided in the house of representatives, and he wanted to speak to this idea that we were all americans again, and certainly that's kind of the way i wish we would feel after the storm and the aftermath of that. so, we can learn from these moments. americans are very good at coming together. doesn't feel that way right now. in the midst of this election but we also have this extraordinary moment where we had a crisis and a moment of division butting heads against each other, and i'm hopeful that we can learn from our history and see that americans do respond to a crisis like this. >> host: as kenneth davis alluded to, the reason he is in new york and booktv is back here in washington, dc is because of sandy. we had some studi

latest tone out of washington is encouraging. "as thomas jefferson said, and this is a quote, 'we should not put off tomorrow what we can do today.'" "the only balanced approach is one that includes real and lasting reforms, so republicans have stepped out of our comfort zone." in the latest manueverings, the obama administration points out the typical american household will pay $2,200 in additional taxes next year, which could hurt consumer spending by $200 billion in 2013 and threaten christmas shopping this season. house speaker john boehner and a few other key republicans appear willing to consider tax hikes. billionaire warren buffett chimes in that tax hikes won't stop the wealthy from investing. in our cover story, the woman who led the securities and exchange commission after the 2008 financial crisis is stepping down. mary schapiro took over an agency under fire for ignoring repeated warnings about the bernie madoff ponzi scheme. in 2008, the regulatory sec was itself under scrutiny, critized for failing to anticipate the lehman brothers bankruptcy, which sent financial markets
